I did not enjoy this one quite as much as the first two. Some of the authors choices were a little weird. The choice of the worst of mankind, for colonist was just A good read with HUGE ideas. Torn on this one First, two men should not presume to write first person from a female perspective - even if one of those men claims to have bounced the story off of his wife; the first quarter of the book was in the form of diary entries of a carryover female character from Rama II The second quarter was decent enough science fiction, but the entire last half of the book was a tiresome play on the failings of the human race, replete with a ton of caricatures and cardboard characters.
And if the authors's bludgeoning polemic wasn't enough, what made them write dialogue using 20th century slurs and prejudices when the story takes pace years in the future? I am guessing that much of this came from Gentry Lee, but then Clarke typically was weak on human interactions. I think I'll need to put some time between this one and Rama Revealed I'm stubborn - I still intend to read as much Clark this year as I can.
The problem of human aggression, and What Clarke things would result from cooping up people with other life forms is dealt with here, as well as peripherally, the problems of lack of transparency in government.
